Dear Selection Committee,
The Collegiate Correspondent Program on USA Today College grabbed my attention due to their reputation of creating national editorial news for the interest of college students. I am keenly interested in this program as a result of their values, creativity, ideas, and enthusiasm. I offer a strong academic background and have completed course in Journalism in news/editorial track as I approach my expected graduation date of May 2014.
I am confident that my qualification presently fit the required criteria for the Correspondent Program. I am confident that my experience writing for my college newspaper and online site will demonstrate my dedication, commitment, interest in excellence. Furthermore, I was recently selected to become a freelance writer for examiner.com.
Nothing brings me more fulfilment than writing an article that informs, incites, and entertains a readers. My aim as a journalist student is to give my readers an holistic perspective and I am confident that your establishment will give me the experience to demonstrated this.
Employers want to see some one that is confident--someone that is refreshing, hence you do not want to use believe. I tried to correct some of the more obvious mistakes that I noticed.
